On behalf of the Board of Education and administration, I welcome you to the 2018-19 school year. If you are new to District 12, I hope your experience exceeds your expectations. I know I speak for our entire staff when I say District 12 is a great place for students to learn and grow!
As we enter the fourth year of our Strategic Plan , I am pleased and inspired that our goals have been prioritized and provide a clear and unambiguous road map that you will hear me refer to as our "Path to Excellence". Continuous improvement — a growth mindset — underpins our work as we sharpen our resolve to improve learning and achievement for each and every one of our students.
As I enter my fifth year as Superintendent, we are thrilled to welcome everyone back to our newly renovated schools. I am proud to share that we have met or surpassed the promises made to the community during the referendum. District 12 is a vibrant and future-oriented environment with dedicated teachers and staff working together to support 21st century learning. We are excited about our facility work but let there be no doubt that our greatest resource is our people.
During the 2018-2018 school year, we introduced our Path to Excellence Magazine. Please watch for 4 new issues of the magazine this year. You can also follow us on Twitter and on Facebook. Our website was also recently redesigned to be more user-friendly.
I look forward to all of the learning that will happen in our schools this year and to getting to know your children and your family!
Dr. Melissa Kaczkowski, Superintendent
